A University of Michigan researcher says the medical community may be stressing the wrong benefits to get people to exercise more.
We’ve all heard it: "Exercise is good for your health." "You’ll live longer."
But are those the right messages? Michelle Segar says no. She’s a research investigator for the U-M Institute for Research on Women and Gender.
Segar conducted a study of full-time working middle-age women and their exercise habits. It shows those who exercised the most did so because exercise helped them enjoy life now.
